Ten Books I Plan to Read This Summer

Coming back from BEA, I have a lot of books on my summer TBR. But these are a few that I'd like to read sooner (than all the others that I want to read soon!).
The books that I have in paper from this list, all seem to be sporting a blue-green-yellow color palate. 

Books Already Released:

1) Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
2) Free to Fall by Lauren Miller

Books Released This Summer:

3) Landline by Rainbow Rowell
4) The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness
5) One Plus One by Jojo Moyes

Young Adult
6) Conversion by Katherine Howe
7) Of Metal and Wishes by Sarah Fine
8) Shimmer by Paula Weston

Books Released Later This Year:

9) Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper
10) Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers


A Book I've Read and Think You Should Add to Your Summer TBR:

Storm Siren by Mary Weber
I LOVED this fantasy book though it has a killer cliffhanger! I felt all the emotions reading Nym's story. Plus my daughter approves because thinks Elsa is on the cover. 

A Series I Will Read if I Can Obtain Copies:

Do you ever get a book or a series stuck in your head and become determined to read it? I REALY want to read these two Aussie titles, but they're not easy to get in the US. I think I'm going to have to buy them despite the steep price. 

What books do you want to read soon?


  1. I've heard so many amazing things about Jojo Moyes that I must read a novel by her soon :) ALSO MORTAL HEART AND SALT & STORM!!!! so jealous you have them already :) Hope you enjoy! Oh, and we're reading Since You've Been Gone with Nick atm. I'm sure she'd love it too if you'd join us, if you're up to it. No pressure :D I'm only 1 chapter in, she has already read 30% lol. Free to Fall is everyone's favorite :) Oh, and um, Shimmer! I hope you enjoy it :) Great list, Lauren!

  2. Oh, gorgeous :D I hope you will enjoy all of these sweetie. <3 MORTAL HEART. I want it so much. Ack. So jealous :) Also excited to read Landline ;p Fingers crossed you will have time to read them all :)

  3. I so cannot wait to read Mortal Heart!! Salt and Storm was a let down for me. :( I actually hadn't heard of Storm Siren until I saw you adding it on GR. It sounds awesome!

  4. Oh my days ho the heck did I forget Shimmer off my list? The amount of times that we've talked about this book too! *hides*. I also need copies of Since You've Been Gone and Free to Fall, I have only heard amazing things about both of these books. I also have Landline on my list, I hope we both end up enjoying it. Happy reading Lauren!

  5. I need Landline and The Book of Life in my life xD Great list, happy reading!

    My TTT

  6. I'm currently reading Since You've Been Gone and I'm loving it so far. It's a really slow book, but it has so much depth to it. I will also be reading Mortal Heart and I can't wait to meet love interest 3 and wait to see how everything wraps up. Of Metal and Wishes is also high up my summer reading list!
    I hope you enjoy your books this summer, Lauren! :)

  7. One Plus One is on my list--and I definitely could have added Landline but I want to read Attachments first, so that's the one that made it onto my list!

  8. Ooh, SO many good books on your list! Loved Since You've Been Gone (though I do start singing the song EVERY. TIME.). Mortal Heart was gorgeous (of course). Can we have more time to read, please? Read and squee about books. That sounds like an excellent summer plan.

  9. Shimmer! I can't believe I forgot to add that to my list. I really look forward to reading it too. Salt & Storm is another one that I can't wait to get my hands on. I think it's releasing at the same time in the UK, which should save me a bit of money. :D And This Is Shyness & Queen of the Night are books I've heard so much about. I definitely look forward to getting around to them one day. Great list, Lauren!

  10. Ahhhh! SHIMMER! I need to read the first two books now that one is finally coming out. I can't wait. You've raved about them and I know I'm going to love them to pieces. I can't wait for Of Metal and Wishes either, Sarah Fine is one of those authors who can do no wrong for me:) SO MANY BOOKS TO LOOK FORWARD TO!

  11. Seeing The Book of Life on there reminds me of how I've been planning to read book 1 forever :P I really should get around to reading it.

    YAY FOR SHIMMER! I am SOOO excited to read it, ESPECIALLY after reading Ari's review for it and I really just cannot wait for it come out! Really excited about Of Metals and Wishes too, I snagged a copy off of EW a while ago and cannot wait to dive into another Sarah Fine book! :D

    Also really excited about Salt & Storm. When I saw the blurb for it, I KNEW I needed it in my life so I basically did mental cartwheels (since I cannot actually do a cartwheel) when I got approved or the UK version on NG! :D

    Fantastic list, Lauren! :D

  12. Hello Lauren, visiting here from a link at Supernatural Snark. I have a copy of This Is Shyness if you'd like to borrow it. Great list! I can't wait to read Landline, either. I have A Discovery of Witches unread on my shelf, but maybe I'll make it around to The Book of Life eventually. Let me know about This Is Shyness.


  13. Mortal Heart is a really fantastic conclusion to the trilogy! Can't wait to hear what you think about the rest of these, too!

  14. So pretty much all of these books are ones I've loved or can't wait to read. Since You've Been Gone, Sinner (once I catch up on the last two books), Shimmer (ditto), Storm Siren, and Landline are ones I hope to get to at some point this summer/year. I can't wait to see what you think of Free to Fall and Mortal Hearts - absolutely love both of those. Great list, Lauren!

  15. This is a great list! I've been really wanting to read Conversion. Happy reading!

  16. I don't know why I didn't put Shimmer on my list!! I'm so crazy about this series. Not that it is the reason, but I'm going to London July 2nd and the book comes out there on July 3rd so going to the bookstore will be a priority while I'm there (otherwise I would have been ordering it from fishpond). Love love love this series!!!

    We're actually reading Landline for book club next month so I will definitely be reading that one soon. And I can't wait for Mortal Heart.

    Free to Fall was really good and I also enjoyed Since You've Been Gone. Great list! And thanks for the recommendation (Storm Siren)…I've been in a fantasy book mood lately. ~Pam

  17. Ohhhh so many amazing books on your list, Lauren! Storm Siren, Storm and Salt and Mortal Heart look fabulous! I haven't heard of any of them, but I am definitely going to be adding them to my TBR! Hope you get through all your summer TBR! HAPPY READING! :D

    Literary Love Affair 

  18. I'm definitely interested in reading Landline, Since You've Been Gone, Free to Fall, Of Metal and Wishes, and Salt & Storm myself. You have a lot of great picks here, Lauren, and lucky you to have so many of them already on hand! I hope you're able to get to them soon!
    I haven't heard of Storm Siren before, so I'll be interested to read your thoughts on that!

  19. You have some great titles on your list!

    Just found your blog while browsing through bloglovin, and I LOVE that you're not a fan of love triangles-they drive me nuts, lol. Just became a follower of your blog through bloglovin :)

  20. I'm waiting on my pre-ordered copy of Shimmer, too. So excited! And I'm dying for the pub to approve me for Salt & Storm. It sounds epic. I need to read my copy of Free to Fall, too, especially after seeing so many awesome reviews for it. Great list! Hope you enjoy every single one of them!

  21. I can't believe it's almost time for One Plus One to be officially OUT. :) I preordered it so long ago, and eee, I can't wait to be able to read it for myself. I also am hoping to read Landline and Since You've Been Gone. Hope you have some fun plans for the summer! xo
